Several Companies Are Eager To Use LinkedIn Talent Pipeline

LinkedIn Talent Pipeline enables recruiters to maintain their private pool of candidates in LinkedIn, even if those candidates do not have a LinkedIn profile. For example, the recruiter can upload the resume of a candidate who does not have a LinkedIn profile. LinkedIn's value proposition is that they will help keep the list fresh, assuming that most candidate in the talent pool will have a LinkedIn profile and will keep that profile up to date.

At the LinkedIn Talent Connect conference, I informally asked many talent acquisition folks what they think about LinkedIn Talent Pipeline tool and they said that they are all eager to start using it. It is seen as a great value add to the current systems they use. One thing though. No one talked about replacing their Applicant Tracking Systems. My guess is that applicant tracking systems won't die. They will fade away slowly.
